Tributes for GP killed in plane attack
The air disaster killed 37 Australians citizens and residents.
Dr Guard, who died alongside her husband pathologist Dr Roger Guard, also committed herself to multiple worthy causes, including Meals on Wheels, assisting Sudanese refugees in Toowoomba and sponsoring children through World Vision.
In a tribute published in the Toowoomba Chronicle, her son Paul said his mother cared for a number of people in need during her years in Toowoomba and provided emotional and practical support for many more.
Her close friend Kaye Robertson described Dr Guard as someone who would do things to help people and would not want recognition for it.
Meals on Wheels said it was saddened by her death. Manager Maxine Thornton said Dr Guard was very committed. “She just loved the service and the values of the place," she told MO.
